Clinton also criticised the senator's "leadership team" and "prominent supporters ... his online Bernie bros and their relentless attacks on lots of his competitors, particularly the women". "The problem arises when we end up with a whole state of people trained to wait for others". "So our job right now is to come together.We've got ten days left, ten days (until the Iowa caucuses on February 3)". It's winning in New Hampshire, doing everything we can.
"I know she said that nobody likes me, right?"
The Iowa rally - in the home city of the University of Iowa - was held one day after Sanders faced backlash from many Democrats after tweeting support for controversial podcast host Joe Rogan.

His campaign had initially chosen not to react Clinton's comments to The Hollywood Reporter, instead redirecting attention to the impeachment.
"Today, I focus on a monumental moment in American history: the Donald Trump dismissal trial. Together, we are going to go forward and defeat the most risky president in American history" Sanders said in a statement released Tuesday.
